    Hey all,

    I have a 2010 tacoma access cab and I am now on the market for a topper. My needs have surpassed the OEM bed toolbox (anyone in the market for a toyota toolbox seattle/tacoma area washington, lets make a deal!)

    I would love to hear your opinions on toppers, what you like/don't like about yours. Models that you think are best?

    I really like are's win-door option. has anyone experiences issues with leaks with this model?

    This is the link that got me started on my research: http://www.bajataco.com/Camper1.html ideally looking for at least vented side windows, rails on the top for a rack, and something that looks good with the tacoma styling.

    Pictures would be much appreciated along with your opinions!

    I'm on my third ARE cap, and obviously pleased with the quality. I have the MX series on my Tacoma, and my only complaint is the single "T" door handle. My previous cap - a CX series - had a double T handle, which is more secure. I also had a Z series, which has a completely different type of handle. It is the most secure becuase you can't grab it and pull really hard to open the locked door.

    ARE "Z" series is what I finally went with. I like the beefed up hinden hinge/door lock/latching system the Z series comes with. Do a search on this topic and you will find plenty of options.
